Akwa Ibom First Lady and others Join Fola Achudume on the Fight Against rape on Saturday

The  Save Her Foundation online  campaign  tagged "War Against  Rape" continues  tomorrow ,Saturday 18th July, 2020 by noon  on www,saveherfoundation.ng.

According to the Lead Facilitator of the non governmental organisation,Rev Mrs Fola  Achudume ,  the first lady of Akwa Ibom State   Her Excellency, Martha Udom Emmanuel will be joined by Professor  Olubunmi Ashinmolowo of Federal University of  Agriculture, Abeokuta  and Reverend Victor  Adeyemi of Global  Havest International Church  as well  as other  stakeholders to talk  about  the causes of rape  and ways to put an end to the  ugly  trend.

Speaking  with  newsmen  in Abeokuta  this weekend, she identified  Emotional instability in males, parental neglect and the lack of fear of God as the reasons for increased rape cases in the society.
Reverend Mrs Fola Achudume of Victory Life Bible Church who spoke  on the  topic  ,Vulnerability of Females  in the Society, are the virtues of mothers  still  with  us? said most men commit rape because the  society places the female  at a disadvantage  culturally  pointing out  that men are also made to bottle  up their emotions and  are treated as tin gods by some  parents. 
Noting that the home front is currently  being neglected because women  these days lend hand in providing for the home unlike in the past, the *Save* *Her* *Foundation*  Lead Facilitator  said the urge for economic advancement has negatively  impacted  the attention that mothers should  ordinarily  give to their children. 
According to her, children who have not been properly raised are more likely to engage in rape.
On stigmatization, Rev Mrs Achudume called for sensitization programmes to get rape victims to speak up about their experiences so their their assailants will be put behind bars.

She also advised parents especially  mothers to devote time  to the upbringing  of their children just as she harped  on the  need  for  concerted  efforts by  stakeholders  to  end rape  in the society.
